What is a settlement agreement?

As your time at a business comes to an end, you may be offered a settle agreement upon leaving your post. This lawful and binding contract defines how your employment term ends, and traditionally includes a severance payment if you agree to not pursue any claims you might have from your employment or its termination. These terms will usually be offered if there are potential claims which need resolving amicably and legally for both parties during a redundancy situation where an enhanced redundancy payment is being made, or as a means of bringing the employment to an end.

Remember, your settlement agreement is not ratified and legal until you have received legal advice from an independent adviser prior to signing it. Our employment specialists will sit down with you to make sure you fully understand the implications of signing the agreement and will provide clarity on the worthiness of the offer versus the merit of your potential claims against your employer. We will then either suggest you sign the agreement or allow our experts to negotiate a better settlement on your behalf, if appropriate.

What are my redundancy rights?

If you are facing being made redundant then it’s important to enlist the advice of Employment Law Specialists to lay out your options.

Every case of redundancy is unique, and you should attain insight over where you stand in terms of your contract, time of service and personal situation to fully understand the next steps available to you.
